What You Will Like

The XT5 is a mid-sized crossover vehicle starting at just under $39,000. At this price point it competes with other luxury crossovers such as the BMW X5 and Audi Q5, both of which it handily undercuts in price. The Cadillac XT5 creates a refined driving atmosphere with its swanky interior and smooth-revving V6 engine. Looking as expensive as cars costing far more, the XT5 is a fantastic value for those needing both space and luxury with a little more ground clearance than what a traditional luxury car can provide.

What's New For 2019

With much of Cadillac's attention on the all-new XT4, the 2019 Cadillac XT5 heads into the new year mostly untouched. There are a handful of shuffled paint schemes, and additional standard equipment appointments for Luxury and Platinum packages and the rear DVD entertainment package also will be dropped.

Loading Comparison...


The 2019 Cadillac XT5 returns for the new model year as the luxury brand’s mid-size crossover SUV—soon to be joined by a bigger, three-row XT6.

Changes are few for the 2019 XT5. In addition to three new color choices, a next-generation 15-watt wireless smartphone charger replaces the previous 5-watt setup.

Trim levels include base, Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Platinum.

Beneath each XT5 hood, a husky 3.6.-liter V-6 engine generates 310 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque. All that power reaches an 8-speed automatic transmission, before arriving at either the front wheels or all four wheels. Dual-clutch all-wheel drive is standard only on the top Platinum model.

Low-speed automatic braking is standard on Premium Luxury and Platinum models, and optional for the Premium edition; it’s not offered for the base XT5. Cadillac bundles the feature with other technology from active lane control to blind-spot monitors and automatic high-beam headlights.

Full-speed automatic emergency braking comes with a Driver Assist Package, optional on Premium Luxury and Platinum trim levels. That package also includes adaptive cruise control and automatic emergency braking while in reverse gear.

The NHTSA gave the all-wheel-drive 2019 XT5 five stars overall. The IIHS rated the 2019 XT5 “Good” in every crash test it performed, but hasn’t rated it in the small-overlap test yet.


Prices do not include $995 destination charge.

Base XT5 ($41,695 with front-drive, $44,695 with all-wheel drive) includes a power liftgate, power front seats, synthetic leather upholstery, 8.0-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, and 18-inch wheels.

Luxury ($48,495 with FWD, $50,995 with AWD) adds leather seating surfaces, heated front seats, front/rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitors, rear cross-traffic alerts, and a panoramic moonroof. The Driver Awareness Package includes low-speed automatic emergency braking, active lane control, and lane-departure warnings.

Premium Luxury ($54,195 with FWD, $56,695 with AWD) includes LED headlights, 20-inch alloy wheels, navigation, and an adjustable performance suspension.

Platinum AWD ($65,895) gets a unique grille, semi-aniline leather, head-up display, a surround-view camera system, 8.0-inch instrument cluster screen, and 20-inch wheels.


Although the XT5 wears Cadillac’s most recent design themes, it’s softer and more subtly shaped than the luxury automaker’s other crossovers and SUVs. Straddling the dimensional line between compact and mid-size, it has a tall profile and subtle details.

It’s an exercise in restraint, though swept-back vertical LED headlights are fairly dramatic.


Crisply styled, the handsome XT5 cabin feels luxurious. Real or simulated wood trim decorates the interior. High-quality materials translate to a satisfying feel inside, though the XT5 Platinum dresses up with lots of metallic trim.

Base models feature durable synthetic leather upholstery. Upper trim levels turn to genuine leather. Platinum takes another step, into semi-aniline leather.

Standard power-adjustable front seats provide solid support. Luxury and higher trim levels incorporate lumbar adjustment.

Because an XT5 is somewhat narrower than many competitors, space can be snug in the back seat. Two adults fit comfortably, however.

On the dashboard, the infotainment display is visually appealing, even flashy. Capacitive-type touch buttons for climate control hide below the dashboard trim. Though it can take a while to learn, the infotainment system includes an 8.0-inch touchscreen and offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability.

Cargo space totals 30 cubic feet, but can be enlarged by moving the 60/40-split rear bench fore and aft. Maximum capacity, with rear seatbacks down, reaches 63 cubic feet.

Driving Impressions

The XT5 delivers on the most important quality a crossover can offer on the road, with its comfortable ride.

The XT5 feels subtly sporty. Robust acceleration comes from its familiar V-6, especially in front-drive models. Its 8-speed automatic runs through the gears with crisp action.

The fully-independent suspension yields a gratifying ride. On upper trim levels, a magnetic suspension adjusts damping continuously, making a noticeable difference. That’s especially helpful on Platinum models, with their 20-inch wheels.

Handling with competence, the XT5 has light power steering that tracks well on interstates when it’s set to comfort mode. Sport mode adds heft, but most drivers won’t notice.

Even with all-wheel drive, the XT5 is no off-road trekker. Then again, neither are its competitors.

An XT5 is reasonably thrifty, considering its V-6 power, and uses regular gasoline. Front-wheel-drive models are EPA-rated at 19/26 mpg City/Highway, or 22 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive drops each number by 1 mpg, to 18/25/21 mpg. All versions use one of the better stop/start systems.


The 2019 Cadillac XT5 offers an upscale feel and comfortable front seats – par for the luxury crossover course. It’s spacious and has subtle touches of luxury and charm, and its V-6 drivetrain has ample acceleration.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
